    We always drank ginger ale when we were sick as kids, not because of anything to do with the soda/sugar, but because the ginger calms your stomach. Now, I drink ginger tea for stomach aches/cramps - same effect, no chemicals or sugar.

    My Husband: "Hey, look, this vodka is gluten free. Your (vegan) dad can have it"
    Me: Vegan and gluten free are completely different. He's not eating animal products.
    My Husband: So gluten-free doesn't mean anything?!?

    I live in an area with no Whole Foods or Trader Joe's, so the organic aisle of my generic grocery store is the best I've got.
    So I'm walking through the other day, and I see a display of "Primal Jerky!" My heart soared! I could pack these as snacks! Because of course, by primal, they mean no sugar added, organic, grass fed, dried beef, right???
    No. They're vegan. First ingredient on every flavor is either Vital Wheat Gluten or Non-GMO Soy Protein.
    Fail.

    Someone posted this on my gym's diet/exercise facebook page today (apparently originally from MSN.com)
    10 RIDICULOUS THINGS DIETERS SAY
    1. “If I exercise enough I can eat what I want.â€
    ...
    2. “I don't drink soda. Only juice, tea, and lemonade.â€
    3. “I avoid potatoes because they're fattening.â€
    4. “I never eat after 7 PM.â€
    5. “I eat the organic chips, which are healthier.â€
    6. “I already blew my diet and ate a piece of cake. Might as well eat the rest of it.â€
    7. “No water for me today—I don't want to look bloated at the party tonight.â€
    8. "I can't eat eggs, they're bad for me!"
    9. "If I eat breakfast, I'll keep eating all day"
    10. “I ate a triple hamburger and large shake today, but that never happens.â€

    I have to post this. It's not really something stupid that was said - rather the opposite. Nothing said and nothing stupid...for once.
    I've been paleo since Aug of 2011. I've been to see my parents (they live in FL, I live in Oregon) about 5 or 6 times since my switch because I travel to their area for work twice a year. I've been to see them three times now while on a Whole30 (I even put copies of ISWF in some stockings at the holidays this year!). Every time, it's a food battle with my mom and mostly because she likes to question me and my motives (not because she disagrees that my food is healthy). Every visit, I try to be as non-confrontational as I can and I often buy and prepare my own meals or dishes on the side.
    This past visit, I arrived and she immediately pulled out all the stuff she'd bought for me: a big container of baby greens, organic apples and blueberries, compliant chicken apple sausages, a new bottle of olive oil and avocados!! My parents don't eat ANY of these things (except olive oil). I didn't ask her to prep anything either. She just got it all right, without having to ask. All these visits and what do you know...she was paying attention!
    For dinner that night we had grass fed lamb chops, roasted veggies (in olive oil) and a greens loaded salad (my dad skipped the greens - he can't eat them for medical reasons...don't ask). No sugar. No bad oils. No grains/legumes/starches. I didn't even have to ask.
    AWESOME. Truly. (plus, they loved the dinner and are eating more like that even when I'm not around!)

    oh, the passive agressive roommate. I finally learned to run my junior year of college, and my overweight roommate just lectured me about how I was going to need knee replacements, and how she used to be a gymnast as a kid. Whatever.

    Now that I'm on Day 30 of my Whole30...
    Everyone and their mother: "So are you going back to eating normal tomorrow?"
    I wish people didn't constantly make me feel like they way I'm eating isn't normal.
